The Wild Rumpus New Year's Countdown!

Hey, all! It's been another wonderful year here at Wild Rumpus. We've premiered a ton of new works, including pieces by Joshua Carro, Leaha Maria Villareal, Lee Weisert, Eliza Brown, Per Bloland, and Ruby Fulton; we've added the fabulous Mia Nardi-Huffman (violin), David Wegehaupt (saxophone), Eugene Theriault (bass), and Weston Olencki (trombone) to our roster; and we've played music by emerging and established composers of new music alike, from our commissions to György Kurtág's eloquent Kafka Fragments, from Caroline Miller's dreamy, surreal Berceuse et Jeux to John Luther Adams' expansive, crystalline The Light Within, from Asha Srinivasan's intricate, sinuous Dviraag to Lee Hyla's blistering We Speak Etruscan. We're so proud of the fantastic talent we've been able to showcase, and the vibrant, challenging music we've gotten to share with you this year, and next year's going to be even bigger! Coming up are new commissions by Ioannis Angelakis, David Bird, Ben Richter, Stefan Weisman, Emma O'Halloran, David Biedenbender, and Christopher Cresswell; another round of the Wild Rumpus Commissioning Project, our open call for composers to commission; recording our first album; and more stuff we'll be so excited to announce! We'd like to celebrate 2014 and welcome 2015 with you in style: with the first-ever...

New Year's Countdown!

If you donate $25 or more, then every so often throughout December, we'll send you a fun little thing via e-mail, until we ring in the new year together!

For every additional $25 you donate, you'll get more little fun things: $50 gets you something every few days, and $75 gets you everything we've got—something for every day, December 7-January 1!

What kind of fun stuff?

It's a surprise! But you can give us a few hints about the kind of stuff you like below, and we'll keep it in mind! They'll be small, but fun, and we think they'll be a fun addition to your holiday season!

Where do donations go?

Donations go to our general operating fund—your donation will help us:

  • Produce concerts
  • Commission composers
  • Hold open salons
  • Make our very first album (!)

All donations are tax-deductible thanks to our fiscal sponsor, San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music. Payments are securely processed using Stripe.

Stripe deducts a small processing fee from your donation, so the tax-deductible amount of your donation will be slightly smaller than the original donation.

Thanks so much for your support, and happy new year!

— Love, Wild Rumpus
